Tulsi, also known as "Holy Basil", is a type of mint that is lovely when brewed into an infusion. Drink this beverage hot or cold, with or without your favorite sweetener.


  • 2 quarts (8 cups) of water
  • 1 handful of tulsi leaves
  • 1 tablespoon honey or your favorite low-carb sweetener (optional)


  1. Place tulsi in a jar, teapot or mug.
  2. Pour hot (just simmered) water over them.
  3. Cover tightly.
  4. Let the herb steep between 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the strength you desire.
  5. Strain the herbs from the tea with a strainer.


Cover tightly to capture all aromatic compounds that rise in the steam.
